Abstract

Paper focuses on reasons for the non-adoption, at least over the long run, of soil conservation technologies by local farmers. Governments are criticized for promoting expensive structures aimed at soil retention rather than at vegetative cover. Long-term adoption depends on building community capabilities that permit farmers to experiment and innovate. The results of COSECHA's field studies on farmer productivity and technological adoption are discussed. - (SLD)
